Successful Anterior Cervical Discectomy with Fusion (ACDF) surgery

Few weeks ago, patient P.J. from Serbia contacted us regarding his cervical spine disc disease at two levels. Within few days, medical documentation was reviewed, surgery indicated and performed by our leading spinal neurosurgeon Robert Saftic MD.

We have performed  Anterior Cervical Discectomy with Fusion (ACDF) surgery in general anesthesia. Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) is a surgery to remove a herniated or degenerative disc in the neck area of the spine. The incision is made in the front of the spine through the throat area. After the disc is removed, a bone graft is inserted to fuse together the bones above and below the disc space. Your doctor may recommend a discectomy if physical therapy or medications fail to relieve your neck or arm pain caused by pressure on the spinal nerves. Patients typically go home the same day; recovery time takes 4 weeks.

Patient is pain-free and he just sent us few follow-up pictures:
